Answering a media query on Robert Vadra's land deals in a village using 'falsified documents' here, chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday said that the state government has not lent any support to any individual or company on illegal grounds.


Hooda said this while interacting with media persons at faculty house of Maharishi Dayanand University here.

On the mounting pressure on state Congress government of lopsided development by party detractors, of late by Rajya Sabha MP Birender Singh, he said: "Equal and judicious development has been done in the state".

Replying to a media query on attending the 20th August rally organised by senior Congress leader and his bete noire Birender Singh, he said: "No formal or official invitation has been extended to me upto now".

He added that state government would formally inaugurate the food security bill on the birth anniversary of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on 20th August.

Terming the food security bill a boon for poor, he said: "In Haryana this scheme would benefit over 1 crore and 30 lakh beneficiaries".

Political analysts see the launching of food security scheme in the state on August 20 by chief minister BS Hooda as a counter measure, as the Rajya Sabha MP Birender Singh is scheduled to organise a rally to show his grip on Haryana voters.
